The extraordinary phenomenon of crashing waves against the lava rocks from the volcano eruption many years ago. Take a camera and you will have some marvellous shots.

Short walk up the cliff, but then you get a stunning view of the lagoon on the black beach. There is a small souvenir shop and market stalls at the parking area, and refreshments.

The hidden lake in the volcano crater at the beach should not be missed Amazing geology and great fun The beach side restaurants are great fun and every one has a stunning view We've been several times but we always go back when we're in Lanzarote

Magnificent views, just a short drive off the Playa Blanca road. Park for free then a 5 minute walk to see the incredible green crater pool and scrumptious blue sea with lapping white waves. Incredible.

We had a great two weeks! The hosts were wonderful: They called us beforehand and waited for us on the street so that we found the house easily, throughout our stay, they were always helpful and just really lovely people! The place was perfect, too: very nice rooms, comfortable bedroom, well equipped kitchen and bathroom - all amenities very well... More

Not a lot in El Golfo, except from some stunning views of the Atlantic ocean and some lovely restaurants. Highly recommended a visit to this hidden gem of Lanzarote.

El Golfo is a beautiful place to visit with stunning views, very warm there too, there is a shop and a restaurant there, the restaurant is nice with basic food overlooking the sea, there is another restaurant further into the village, apparently its a fish restaurant and quite expensive, supposed to be very very nice though, definitely worth a trip...

El Golfo is one of our favourite places to visit, a short drive from Playa Blanca. Good choice of restaurants, great for fish. The lago verde- green lake is a must see, it's on the island tours so can get quite busy. Well worth a visit.

We attended to El Golfo lagoon when on holiday. I must admit there is not much to see, that you haven't seen from the photo. However, it is a good experience and is free! We sadly didn't try any of the restaurants whilst there. There is a small little gift shop near the car park which sells a variety of... More
